Thanksgiving Weekend

We've had a fun and busy weekend. Had a great Turkey day, and then we] have put up Christmas decorations and lights, started working on some Christmas craft projects, and did some shopping. This is definitely going to be the year of constant tree decorating as Jackson takes things off the tree frequently! He likes the musical instrument ornaments, I guess because they are shiny. We made sure that we only put the durable and soft ornaments on the bottom half of the tree!  Mike installed the snow blade on the tractor and moved it to the garage, so we are ready for winter. The downside of this is that every time we go by, Jack wants a ride on the tractor. He's even learned to say "tractor" this weekend.

Yesterday, he also played a game of pool with daddy...on top of the table using his hands instead of a cue stick. I'm pretty sure I could be great at pool if I got to use his rules too, but he had a great time. He just brought me a few more tree ornaments, so I guess it's time to go redecorate the Christmas tree again. We are always playing fun games at our house!

Trick-or-Treating

We didn't stay out for long for trick-or-treating. We went to a grand total of 5 houses, all near home, and were back in less than half an hour. Jack liked the very first piece of candy he got--a dum dum sucker--and wasn't really interested in much else. He did come to school earlier in the day to make an appearance at my class party and costume parade, and all the kids liked getting to see him.
